Overview

Joker Squad was the nickname of the Company C, Battalion 9 of the 407 Division. The Squad participated in the Battle of Botajef during the Sith-Imperial War under the Fel Empire and in the Battles of Borosk and Taivas under the Sith Empire. They also performed missions on Napdu, searching for and eliminating survivors in after the orbital bombardment and Ossus where they searched the Jedi Academy for any Jedi.

Most of the Jokers were loyal troopers who followed orders from their superiors. However Hondo Karr defected after Borosk because he couldn’t stand the cruelty of the Sith and Jes Gistang thought that firing on the 908 was wrong but Harkas always was able to get them to follow orders.

Battles

The Battle of Botajef

Joker Squad participated in the Battle of Botajef against a relatively small force of Mandalorians. They were able to gain victory because the Imperials had more numbers. During the battle Joker Squad suffered heavy casualties before finding Hondo Karr and folding him into the unit, believing him to be a wounded trooper. The Imperials and thus Joker Squad are victorious.

The Battle of Borosk

During the Battle of Borosk, the 407 fought fellow stormtroopers of the 908 who defected from the Sith Empire to the Fel Empire; Joker Squad was led by Lieutenant Gil Cassel and Darth Maleval. After the first day everyone made it out alive. That night Lt. Cassel offered surrender to the 908 but Darth Maleval superseded and retracted those orders, leading to a second day of fighting. During the second day Joker Squad lost four members, one was seriously wounded and one defected. The 407 wins the battle but due to casualties Joker Squad’s victory is pyrrhic.

Search on Ossus

Joker Squad was rebuilt following the Battle of Borosk and was deployed to Ossus to search for Jedi who were using old Jedi Academy as a base. They discovered Wolf Sazen, K’Kruhk, and Shado Vao but Vao uses a mind trick to make them forget. When Joker Squad returns empty handed Darth Stryfe orders the destruction of the Academy anyway.

Search on Napdu

After the moon Napdu is bombarded because Azzim the Hutt aided the Galactic Alliance with moving Mon Calamari, Joker Squad is sent in to find any survivors and kill them. They shoot every body, alive or dead, they come across just to make sure.

The Battle of Taivas

Joker Squad is deployed to Taivas for the Sith assault on the Hidden Temple of the Jedi and they are given orders to kill anyone without a red lightsaber. During the battle they suffer heavy casualties, especially after Darth Krayt’s Sith Troopers arrive. The Sith Empire and thus Joker Squad eventually win the battle but many Jedi escape causing the Sith leaders to see it as a failure.
